Myeloproliferative Neoplasm (MPN)

  • Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPN) are a set of diseases associated with too many blood cells of a certain type in the body.

  • These cells overcrowd other cells, leading to imbalance and disease state.

  • Testing for MPN related genetic changes can uncover the genetic cause of the overproduction and allow for treatment related decisions.

Sample Requirements:

  • Peripheral Blood or Bone Marrow

    • 2-5mL in a sodium heparin (green top) tube. 5 mL in a EDTA (purple top) will be accepted but is not preferred.

    • Minimum: 1 mL

  • Storage:  Room temperature if being shipped within 24 hours.  Refrigerate if shipping will be delayed.

  • Stability: Sample is optimum if received within 48 hours.

  • Transportation:  Room temperature (do not freeze or fix)
